I refuse to defuse the bomb of love -
Crafted by Nature, drafted by Man
Into the military which it has banned.
Knows none about its whereabouts or coordinates
But it will soon burst, beware'st.
And when it would, it would shake the highest ridge,
The deepest forest, the strongest bridge,
The largest ocean, the widest grasslands,
The shackles of society, the empires of sand.
I come to you with a pledge, and a warning
About the hurricane which will soon be storming
Over lands and seas and winds and skies -
Where peace persists and hatred dies.
I bring to you contentment with ambition;
I bring to you harmony with revolution;
I bring to you the extravagance of simplicity;
I bring to you the illusion of reality.
I aim to stop the charity of greed;
I aim to stop the slavery of the freed;
I aim to stop the inequality of equality;
I aim to stop the war against tranquility.
And with me do yearn, hundreds of millions
To stand up on Humanity's pavillion
And declare war on hatred and greed:
Will You not join us in our humble deed?
Will You not rue the deeds of man
And do whatever you absolutely can:
Which is, to love and love for love's sake own,
And hate naught but hatred's condone':
Will You not do, without ado, the simple act of loving?
